CB - TEN
Week 8 Outlook
Dianna Russini of ESPN reports Johnathan Joseph is signing a one-year contract with the Titans.
The 36-year-old reunites with Mike Vrabel in what will likely be a mentoring role. Joseph should still see snaps on the field on a rotational basis but the days of him being a full-time starter appear to be over. Pro Football Focus rated him as the leagues' 83rd best cornerback in 2019 (out of 128 qualifiers).
Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph (neck) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice after being limited Tuesday.
Joseph sat out Week 17 due to a neck injury but appears on track to play in Saturday’s playoff game against the Colts. Defensive end J.J. Watt (elbow/knee) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (ankle) remained limited while safety Mike Tyson was a non-participant before being placed on IR.
Texans cornerback Jonathan Joseph left Thursday night’s win over the Dolphins with an ankle injury.
Joseph suffered the injury in the first-quarter when teammate Jadeveon Clowney rolled into his legs while making a tackle. He was unable to return. The hope is the injury isn’t too serious especially considering the Texans are already without cornerbacks Kevin Johnson, Aaron Colvin, Kayvon Webster, and Shareece Wright.
Johnathan Joseph recorded four total tackles before exiting with a shoulder injury against the Titans. Joseph considers himself day-to-day and "Hopes to play against the 49ers" in Week 14.
Joseph obviously isn't a doctor, but there is reason for optimism. Keep an eye on the Texans' injury report through the week.

Joseph, who has been quiet in the early going, finally got the breakout game he's been looking for. Joseph will look to build on his performance in Seattle against the Seahawks following the Texans Week 7 bye.
